I will be frequently updating this thread as I learn news / announcements in a live blog style of writing. I will try and make it as clean as possible and update the content after I meet with the given vendor/media partner. I look forward to providing you guys with some upcoming products and hopefully there are some big announcements.
Just a heads up there will be more content provided for
since they are a sponsor for me this year. Feel free to tweet me
/@overclocknet or Jeffrey.Edson/OCN Facebook if you guys want to interact with from the show floor. I will also be present on discord through the even on the OCN channel for live feedback. If you guys have questions hit me up!
The event started with Jensen Huang going over the history of GPUs and graphics. The main focus was to show how Turing architecture has revolutionized the gaming industry with its RTX performance.
He focused on how much of an improvement Turing is over Pascal by showing graphs of computing performance.
Before I get to the big reveal, Jensen had led us to believe he was just recapping how important ray tracing was. He went over tensor cores and re-showed demos like the Battle Field V one from GamesCom. After watching the real-time BF V demo, he revealed to us that it was actually running on the newly announced RTX 2060!
The RTX 2060 is available starting January 15th for $349 following partner card shortly after!
For the launch, there is a special bundle giving away Anthem/BFV for the 2060/2070 & both for the 2080/Ti.
There was also an announcement for G-Sync ultimate and the more interesting but short asynchronous G-Sync list of monitors. Essentially, Nvidia tested 400 monitors but only 12 had come back to standard for adaptive Gsync. These monitors will have adaptive sync support through a new driver update on January 15th. He did mention you can turn it on for any monitor but it's at your own risk.
The last thing that Jensen covered was the new thin MaxQ RTX laptops that show performance over a desktop 1070 & 1080.
We were invited to visit the Nvidia booth this year for extra coverage, if there are any specific questions you guys want from the community please let me know.
